Dressing room is considered the best option for storing clothes. However how best and more optimal to create similar conditions for storing things and how to do it?
In place with the leaders of the Studio furniture and design Deni-Art Tatiana Skvortsova we talk about the ergonomic design of your wardrobe and advise how to properly and maximally use the area under the closet.
The dimensions of the closet
Ideally, the dressing room has a rectangular shape. It is desirable to observe some proportions: the length of the walls should be more than two meters, and covers an area greater than 3 m2.
You’ll be able to find the area under the dressing: consider the horizontal branch on a long wall, the number is multiplied by the width of each of them (usually they are the same width from 50 to 100 cm) — this will be the length of the room. If the cabinets have drawers, you should multiply the depth of the cabinets on the 2 and allow free passage of 50 cm, So we get the optimal width of the wardrobe, located at one wall wardrobes.
How best to zone the room?
Upper zone located on a distance of about 2 metres to the floor. There will be off-season or rarely used clothes. It takes no more than 50 cm.
The middle area is better positioned at a distance of from 70 to 170 cm to the floor, because it is the main area for the location of all necessary. There are hanging clothes on hangers are stored towels and there are drawers with your favorite accessories.
The lower zone located in the remaining space — about 50-70 cm to the floor. Here embedded system for shoes and are not as frequently used items.
Storage of clothing on hangers
All your jackets and blouses should be stored on hangers to maintain the folded state. It takes no more than 1 meter in height, the depth is 50 cm.
Outerwear pants, coats and dresses, keep with other things, however, they are slightly longer — typically up to 175 cm Pants and skirts are on hangers at the height from the floor not more than 120 cm do Not use hangers below 50 cm — they don’t need.
Not so often, but there are still times when pulling some clothing items have a problem. To address this question invented a very simple solution — furniture pantographs. At its core, is a rod with a lifting mechanism, which make it easy and simple to get your hands on the necessary clothing. Setting up this lift in your dressing room, you will need additional ladders and stools to get things.
To conveniently and compactly to place your shoes, simply install Shoe racks or drawers.
Thus it is necessary to observe some distances: old shoes kept in the range of 20 cm between the shelves and the autumn and winter — Usually 50 cm pair of Shoe is 25 cm, which determines the average distance the shelves in 70-100 cm in width.
Some people like to keep their road shoes in boxes. For this we recommend to choose transparent boxes with holes and a place for notes.
Many expensive items require special storage conditions. Therefore, you should consider the ventilation inside the room. It is also possible to arrange doors blinds between the elements will be a sufficient amount of fresh air.
How to store accessories?
For the placement of tights, socks, underwear and other clothing items are great drawers. They are divided into small sections across the width not exceeding 15 cm length selectable type apparel section with bras is longer than the compartment for socks.
Ties, belts and scarves can be placed on special racks or hangers. A set of hats and gloves should be placed in boxes so they will remain in pairs.
Small items of clothing should be placed in narrow sections with shelves, the height of which does not exceed 20 cm and depth — 25 cm
Highly recommend to hang in the closet wide and high mirror off the floor. Be sure to consider the lighting next to it. This approach is very practical and will allow you to get dressed directly in a dressing room.
Bed linen is perfect to keep on the wide shelves. Best of all, to a depth of not less than 50 cm.
Not necessarily that dressing room was too big. Even a few square metres, you can arrange a comfortable and functional space for storage.
Thank you for the advice Tatyana Skvortsov, head of the Studio furniture and design Deni-Art.
